As an alternative to the submission of a stipulation of settlement, the settlement may be presented in open court on the record or by recorded telephone conference call. 2. This form may also be submitted by a taxpayer who is not represented by an attorney, in which case the taxpayer's signature on the stipulation of settlement will be followed by the words "pro se." 3. When the request for the Freeze Act is received after a Judgment has been issued by the Tax Court for the base year, it must be submitted on the Application for Judgment Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 54:51A-8 (Tax Court Freeze Act), Form 11016. Tax Court forms are available on the web at njcourts.com/taxcourt. 4. If the settlement involves more than one separately assessed property in the same complaint, use the attached Additional Properties Schedule listing the properties included in the stipulation. Attach additional schedules as necessary. 5. If the settlement involves condominium units, please provide a copy of the Condominium Schedule you completed when filing your complaint. Fill in the column marked "Requested Tax Court Judgment" and attach it to the stipulation. 6. The stipulation may include more than one docket number but a copy of the stipulation must be provided for each separate docket number (except condominiums). 7. The Tax Court judgment will only include the year(s) for which the court has jurisdiction. The only exception is if the settlement seeks application of the Freeze Act for a subsequent year (Freeze Act year) and if the stipulation of settlement is signed after October 1 of the year preceding the Freeze Act year. For example, if the base year is 2010 and the Freeze Act year is 2011, the stipulation must be signed by all parties after October 1, 2010 for the Freeze Act to apply. The Freeze Act will only be applied if there is no change in value or revaluation or reassessment for the Freeze Act year and if the proposed Freeze Act figures are the same as in the Tax Court Judgment used as the base year.
